Champagne Cristal 2012 Louis Roederer, the flagship of the company, a noble, lively wine, with undisputed elegance and an icon of luxury! Created from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes that age 6 years in the cellar, it is a precious champagne that delights us with its extreme refinement, its lively bubbles and its aromas sweetness.


Cristal brut is the most loved AOC Champagne since the times of Tsar Alexander II, who asked Louis Roederer to elaborate the best Champagne for him, reserving the best cuveè every year. The name "Cristal", not surprisingly, derives from the material with which the special crystal bottle was created, to enhance its exclusivity, transparency and brilliance.

The grapes used to create this precious 2012 Cristal are 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay. This vintage, despite the numerous climatic adversities experienced during the seasons, was very fruitful, the grapes reached a rare and amazing level of ripeness, giving life to great wines, rich, full-bodied and structured, revealing one of the best vintages ever seen in Champagne!

The Cristal spends 6 years of maturation on the lees and, after dégorgement (disgorgement), it rests in the cellar for another 8 months. The dosage is 7.5 g / l.

In the glass it reveals a golden yellow color, with bright reflections. The bubbles are as fine as they are powerful and lively. On the nose it is rich in fruity and acidic aromas of candied citrus fruits and notes of white flowers, toasted hazelnut and vanilla. In the mouth it is inviting, mature and enveloping, with a chalky freshness, it is released with all its elegance and nobility, closing with a long and concentrated finish.

A Champagne for connoisseurs, of extreme elegance and refinement. Subtle and mature, it boasts exceptional balance. Its power, combined with finesse, allows you to combine it wonderfully with the most delicate and refined dishes.
